Chinese embassy slams meeting between U.S., China's Taiwan officials


China has lodged stern representations with the U.S. side after a meeting between U.S. officials and "Taiwan's representative to the U.S." Hsiao Bi-khim, the Chinese Embassy in the U.S. said on Wednesday.

The embassy's statement came after an official from the U.S. State Department tweeted about the meeting.

China is strongly opposed to and condemns the move by Washington, a spokesperson for the embassy said in the statement.

"We urge the U.S. to give up its illusion of using Taiwan to contain China," the spokesperson said, stressing that China will fight back any statements or actions that challenge the one-China principle or China's core interests.
